At the end of Brazil’s 5-0 friendly win against South Africa in Johannesburg, a little boy ran onto the pitch looking to greet his idols, and sure enough, he got that chance! Despite security’s efforts to retrieve the “pitch invader,” Neymar ran over to the boy, picked him up, and introduced him to the entire team.
A little kid comes onto the field, security tries to take him off only to the boos of The crowd. Neymar runs back and picks him up!— Rossella Marrai (@RossellaMarrai)March 5, 2014
I love the Brazilians, little kid runs onto the pitch to see Neymar, Neymar picks him up- David Luiz takes a selfie with him. #class— Alexander Bertin (@ABBasson17)March 5, 2014
It’s precisely moments like this that give soccer its reputation as “The Beautiful Game.”
